Quick Reference


Papal nuncio. After Card. T. de V. Cajetan's failure to silence M. Luther, Miltitz was chosen to take the Golden Rose to Frederick III, Elector of Saxony, and try to win his support against Luther. He took it upon himself to negotiate a compromise, and at a meeting at Altenburg in 1519, Luther agreed to refrain from further action pending reference of the matter to a German bishop. Miltitz proceeded to Leipzig, where, in the hope of restraining the movement, he disavowed J. Tetzel, but two further meetings with Luther proved fruitless.
